attack on a flight that was going from amsterdam to detroit, and a president was vacationing in hawaii and it took him days to make an announcement about that? >> hang on. one at a time. listen, please, christie, we have to go one at a time, our audience wants to hear from both of you. let me go to the president today in phoenix, we repeated phony scandals, while we play this, think of four dead americans in benghazi, people that were targeted by the irs because of their political views, and ask you -- think of brian terry who lost his life. are these really phony scandals? here's the president again. >> unfortunately for the last year or so, we've had an endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals that shift focus away from what do we need to do to shore up middle class families and create ladders of opportunities for folks to get in the middle class. and as washington heads toward another budget debate, the stakes could not be higher. >> is that a phony scandal for those four people, five people, if you include brian terry? >> the majority of americans t
are incorrect. next up, true or false, the city of detroit is holding an important election tomorrow for the top leadership of that great american city. is that true or is that false? [ buzzer ] that is false. the city of detroit is holding an election tomorrow, but it is pointless because there is no democracy in detroit anymore. the guy on the left of your screen here is dave bing, who is the mayor of detroit elected by the people in 2009. he's not running again for the position, and i think i know why. the guy on the right is kevin ohr, he's detroit's emergency manager. he was never elected to his position. he was put in place by michigan's governor. he makes 75% more than the mayor makes, but kevin is the only one who has any power. whatever he wants, detroit does because he is the emergency manager, not the elected leader and emergency managers get to run that city now, not the people who get elected. so tomorrow we'll go through the motions, more than a dozen candidates will be running in a primary to become detroit's next powerless figure as mayor. who want do anything. the top two finish

being good for the communities that is the plants that depend on carmakers, detroit. what does it mean to detroit? >> this is tough, tough, tough for detroit. the manufacturing jobs in detroit have disappeared. back in the 50's 300,000 manufacturing jobs. last year, 27,000 jobs. those jobs have dispersed all over the united states and some are replaced by computers. the jobs are not coming back. detroit used to have a population of 1.85 million people. now they barely hit 700,000. this is a city that has been in decline for 60 years. tough times. >> heather: will the trend continue in 2014? for car sals, in general. >> guest: car sales can remain a recovery story because of pent up demand and the very old cars on the road. i don't thing we will suddenly see 25 million cars being sold. >> heather: not good news know detroit. 300,000 manufacturing jobs and down to 27,000. we appreciate you joining us. do you remember your first car in mine was a 64corvair. >> gregg: i had a mercury colony park used. it was wasn't a model t. >> the fight for the soul of the republican party with new jerse

of change, revving in detroit and super sized shark attack. gentleman rina lewis, let's talk about the job jobs. break them down. >> sluggish at best. 162,000 jobs added. the expectation was 185,000. even whispers of 200,000. so way off. to put it in perspective, at this rate it will take seven more years to make up for the jobs lost in what is now deemed as the great recession. and it gets worse. because even though unemployment is down slightly, it's a bit misleading because participation is down. you've got to remember, every day 10,000 baby boomers retire. what is replacing those jobs, two-thirds of the jobs are part-time largely in the retail sector, which is notorious for low wages. >> a lot of mill lessen kwrals are living at home with their parents. >> a lot of people in the industry are saying selection. these days you can't have a few models you have to have lots of models. there seems to be something about a truck, to borrow a line from a country song. g.m., 16%. ford, 11%. these are sales to consumers, not fleet sales or commercial sales where the margins are lower. >> that is

unfortunately. >>> a new showdown over detroit's request for bankruptcy protection. unions and retirees are challenging the math suggesting that the city's financial position is not as bad as claimed. detroit's emergency manager saying that the city has at least $18 billion in liabilities and doesn't have enough revenue to pay them off. retirees and unions fear they could lose their pensions or have to pay more for health care. if the bankruptcy goes through, the hearing is set for october. martha: well there are almost 50 unions in the city of detroit and detroit is said to have long-term liabilities and debt of at least $18 billion. that includes $3.5 billion of unfunded pensions in the city as well as $5.7 billion in unfunded health benefits. the rest is owed to bondholders and other unsecured creditors. detroit's population is plummeting. since 2000, the city has lost more than 55 residents every single day. all of that adds up to a huge amount of problem in bankruptcy that detroit is seeing and a lesson for many other american cities as well. we're just getting started. we have a b
york city like detroit. we're not detroit. but with actions like this and with actions like the city council where they just recently passed a law that says individuals can actually sue policemen individually, not corporately, it's really unfortunate. >> gretchen: it's interesting to see when you have the police commissioner, ray kelly and the mayor agreeing so strongly on this particular issue, 'cause they don't agree on everything, to see them come out and be so upset about this must say something about the way in which they've been conducting business for the last decade. i just want you to look at the stats. here is new york city crime stats. 2012-2013, murder down 27.5%. murder down, shooting incidents down, 28.6%. so joe, how do you expect that to change when officers can no longer stop and frisk? >> well, officers can still stop and frisk, but they're going to be handcuffed in how they do it. the judge basically thinks and without any credible evidence that police officers are stopping people for -- without having any suspicious activity, when in fact, that's been not proven.
to a detroit station, detroit owner, they let me out of my contract just on a handshake because -- to come to nbc. 35 years ago. because i came under the understanding that i would only work for the graham family. that was how close the connection was, ruth. >> i think all of us have that -- who have been around for a while any way, interest that personal connection with the graham family. i have a column that should be on washingtonpost.com later this afternoon talking a little bit about that personal connection. and that is why i think in the newsroom and to some degree outside there is trust in this decision, that it is in the "washington post's" best interests because we've had so many years of seeing the graham family make decisions that were in the "washington post's" best interests. and, you know, but it is also you talk about the impact on you. i started to get calls yesterday and e-mails from government officials, from my children, from friends, from family, saying we're stunned, we're reeling, it really is the sort of earthquake moment in the life of the capital. >> it is a washi

of michigan and, of course, everybody's aware of the economic pain felt by the city of detroit, so finishing a swim there was also very symbolic. what we really wanted to show, number one, we're selling these bricks to help fund building projects, but there was also a message of hope we wanted to deliver, you know, that we don't have to sink with the weight of our burleds, you know? and if one man can pull a ton of bricks 22 miles, then what are we able to accomplish if we all pull together? i believe we will have the strength to pull ourselves out of this, and that was really the message that we delivered. jenna: it's such a powerful message, and it struck me as i was reading a little bit about you that most of the stories we do about detroit and about michigan are, as you mentioned, you know, they're negative because of what's going on right now with the economy. and you had an interesting interaction with a woman who traveled to see you at the end of this swim, jim. tell our viewers a little bit about that. >> this was the most special moment of the swim for me, you know? in addition to m
's public comments. >> that's right. it's simplified by the vice president is detroit was alive and bin laden was dead. they went on to say it was on the heels. this seems to call it into questions. it's not just groups that hit us in benghazi that this administration hasn't really focused on but al qaeda was the one they were focused on. also the progressive line that all we have to do is pull out of iraq, dwachb stan, roll over, play nice doggy and these people won't be as violent against us isn't true. basically we've shifted from offense to defense and this is what happens. >> quickly, what's the significance for you that this includes afghanistan? >> i think it shows central asia continues to be a real hot spot and even though they want the afghan war to be over, we still have to have the ability to act in central asia as long as asia and militants are there. >> thank you so much for your insight. good luck with the book. >> thanks, shannon. >>> peace negotiations continue. hopes are high but the path will not be easy. the defense minister joining us live with his thoughts next. >>

saying bin laden is dead and detroit is alive. but the fact is you have had to walk that back because there is a threat. apparently serious enough to close all of these embassies. and more broadly, i think you are seeing the collapse of a lot of the progressive doctrine that has gone into obama's foreign policy this notion that beginning even before obama took office in berlin that you could go and apologize for america. blow kisses at europe, then, you know, outstretch your hand to iran and now you go to cairo, apologize for america. apologize for a cia operation that took place nearly a decade before obama was gone. and end wars. and that that would somehow make these threats go away. it just hadn't happened. obama still can't name the threat we face. saying it's just extremism. i know someone who calls himself extreme yoga instructor. put her in guantanamo and make the enemy safer. the enemy in this regard is islamism. we are doing just about nothing to fight that. >> laura: christian, i will take issue with something you said though because while you are right, i think on the lang
washington, d.c., detroit and chicago. have the highest gun murder rates in the entire country. we also know the converse that in areas of the country where gun control is relatively lax, crime rates go down. an armed society is a safer society. that's a different question than the police in stop and frisk. >> that's not necessarily true. in texas, they have you know, you can carry and it's fairly easy to acquire a gun legally. but houston is -- you know, it's a dangerous place because you have got a lot of that what we were talking about. the neighborhoods that are out-of-control. that's where all the crime begins. do you believe stop and frisk, colmes, is racial profiling? >> the way they do it in new york is i'm not against stop and frisk and neither is the court. the court way it's being implemented in new york in newark where they're every month putting on line who is being stopped. racial -- what race they are and complete transparency that's the way to do it. and civil libertarians. >> bill: have an officer who stops somebody do what? >> write down how are stopping. write down the rac
on to larence. caller: i have a question. i am a city employee. the city of detroit is under an emergency manager. right now the emergency manager is in federal court to file a ankruptcy for detroit. what he wants to do is to stop paying into our pension ystem. our pension system is protected by the michigan onstitution. what do you see happening to our pension if the federal bankruptcy allows them to stop paying into our pension? guest: that is a difficult legal question. there are a lot of people who have worked their entire lives believing their pension would be here for them. the issue is that federal law is supreme to state law. if federal law is properly invoked, then the michigan constitution does not have anything to say about it. it is not clear whether detroit properly file that petition. the michigan constitution says a municipality cannot do anything that would diminish the tensions of the employees. filing a bankruptcy petition can be interpreted as something that would diminish their ensions. so the argument that's very plausible is the petition itself is no good. the federa
their way. a city in california went bankrupt and had to file for bankruptcy. detroit is filing for bankruptcy. these democratic cities have democratic policies for such a long time. when they have their way, that's what happens. we continue on with these policies that are being pushed down our throats. that is going to happen to a larger scale. we cannot afford everything. we cannot be everything to everybody. we need to live within our means. i grew up among democrats. i hear this nonsense all the time. we need to live within our means. host: ron is from tip of florida this morning. -- is from tampa, florida this morning. we brought up the proposals tea party members are pushing. a possible government shutdown if government includes financing for the affordable care act and its proposal to extend government funding beyond that date. today's "washington post," he is a republican strategist talking about that strategy as a possible option under his headline -- scott is from maine on our independent line. talk about this idea of compromise. is it possible in today's political cli

o'reilly has called on viewers to help. so far they have raised $8 million. martha: one detroit area doctor is facing serious charges today. here is a picture of him. he's accused of bilking the government out of tens of millions of dollars by deliberately misdiagnosing patients with cancer, then giving them chemotherapy they did not need, then illegally billing immediate care for that treatment. you're mind cannot wrap around what this man is accused of doing. laura ingle is live in our newsroom in new york city. >> reporter: there is a staggering list of accusations against the doctor. he got rich by mistreating patients. by administering chemotherapy when his patients didn't need it. the government claims that he billed $35 million to medicare over 2 years, raking in $24 million in drug infiewks building. the drug complaint says co-workers dozens of people pass through the offices each day with the doctor only spending minutes with each patient, then hiring doctors who may not have been properly licensed. one nurse said she saw chemotherapy given at inappropriate times and treat t
